This past weekend, JR continued his international series, Wrinkles of the City, at an opening in Berlin at Galerie Henrik Springmann. The show comes on the heels of JR completed numerous mural and street pieces in Berlin over the past few weeks.
From the gallery:
In April 2013 JR is working on over 15 buildings in the Berlin city limits, within the context of his project ‘The Wrinkles of the City’. Just as he has already done in Cartagena, Shanghai, Los Angeles und Havana, JR is now portraying here older people who have lived through the changes and upheavals of their city. Their individual life stories and what they have gone through show up in their facial features just as Berlin’s history does on the buildings where JR posts up the portraits.
